Two people riding a motorcycle on Lakeshore Drive in Grainger County were airlifted to Johnson City Medical Center when the driver lost control of the bike.

Jeremy Kyle, 23, of Bean Station, and a 17-year-old girl who was a passenger on the 1986 Honda Goldwing were transported to the hospital Tuesday, according to reports.

The report stated Kyle was riding along Lakeshore Drive when he began to turn a curve and lost control of the bike. He went off the left side of the road and the bike flipped, throwing Kyle and the girl into a barbed wire fence.
